If the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street movements ever joined up and occupied Main Street -- both here and in Europe, we just might see something change peacefully for the better for all of us. I've tried talking to both groups, but I'm just an average counterculture Joe from Main Street in the United States of Amnesia. The other Joes out there where I come from don't hear me anymore. I have to believe that they are revisiting and rewriting my history. I admire and respect Howard Zinn's version of The People's History.

I'm gonna go out of here on Jerry's and Bear's coat tails. That's what it amounts to for me. I'm proud of that, and it's good enough for me. People like me are trying to die as fast as we can. Taping bands, being soundman, doing tech support and building tape decks for Ampex -- that's what I know, that's what I did, and that's where I come from. If some people here get that, they've probably heard my tapes that I recorded. I can't change who I am and where I come from, but I can change my thinking and my behavior.

I have done a lot of hiking, camping and backpacking. If you're having too many adventures on recreational backpacking trips, then things probably aren't going according to plans, and that's why you're having some problems.

Maybe all we have here is a global supply and demand problem. With seven billion people on the planet right now, I'm just sayin' maybe it's time to bring them into the fold when it comes to America's debt and her Empire behind it. People in my Disneyland-town seem to know three things, and that's all they care about: them, themselves, and their i-Phones.
